Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul. --Joyce Carol Oates

I never realized that you had two blogs. How on earth do you find the time? I am a great follower of your other blog which I read every day, but now I now see that I will have to read this blog more. This list you have made are they of books that you have read or mean to read? I like the idea of a five year book challenge I'm seriously going to think about that one.

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for being a regular reader.

I've been thinking I need better headings to explain the lists and your post proves it. I originally started this blog just as a listing of all the books I could remember, or had record of, having read. Then I started a list of books I owned, but hadn't read (pre-Library Thing, so it's totally out-of-date and I ought to just delete it), and the five year challenge is of course aspirational.

Unless you consider Borders Books or Barnes & Noble to be proper libraries, on par with your neighborhood library maintained through taxes, it's much more appropriate to refer to Google as a book store.lesbian novels
